    Last week in Dublin, Jack White opened his live set with a blues infused, head banging cover of Kanye West's "Black Skinhead". In a May interview with Rolling Stone White confessed his fondness for West, claiming that the rapper had approached him about collaborating on a few pieces for 2013's Yeezus. While nothing ever came of the conversation, apparently West never followed up with his initial suggestion, White isn't shy about his praise for Yeezy's boldness; calling a recent by West "more punk, more in-your-face" than anything he's seen.

    Spotty fan video captures 16 minutes of White's Thursday night performance, beginning with the high octane instrumental cover of "Black Skinhead". Unfortunately you can't see much of White banging out the fight song, but there is plenty to hear. White's band hammers out the Yeezus track weaving it with White's own "High Ball Steppper". Later in the same show Jack and his Dead Weather band mate Alison Mosshart, of The Kills, shared the mic for an intimate rendition of White's "Love Interruption," and wrapped up the set with a cover of the folk classic "Goodnight, Irene", during which the plugs were pulled to meet curfew while the artists carried on playing until the end was theirs.

    Get a feel for White's "Black Skinhead" performance below.
